talk shows he may be willing to negotiate a little bit on that. let us hear from jeff on the republican line in cape cod. good morning. welcome to the program. caller: i think he is just a shrewd politician. he knows he cannot act to stop the house from passing anything they want right now. a -- so i think he is just taking some wind out of the democrats sale. it would be the senate that would be the issue. but i actually don't think that tax cuts should be extended for really anyone. if the $3.70 trillion deficit projected and only $100 billion would be saved, that is still $3 trillion in debt. i am a middle-class person and i don't mind paying a little bit more for the long-term fiscal irresponsibility. i don't think that the tax cuts should be extended. and i do not think in two or three years they would ever raise taxes to offset the debt for expenses. i would rather see them expire and see what happens. tax cuts are in effect right now. the economy is in the ditch. i don't see that they will create a new job because they are not reading them. host: and you are a republican? caller:
bill: on the radio with brian. martha: we are brian's friends. come and listen to us there.

stated, there is no doubt that iran has weapons of mass destruction and that he is planning on using them against our friends, are allies, and against us. >> they are controlled by a murderous tyrant who has already used chemical weapons to kill thousands of people. >> suddam hussein has and used mass destruction weapons against america. that, of course, has turned out to be bull puck key as well. press secretary said this. make no mistake, as i said earlier, we have high confidence that they have weapons of mass destruction. that is what this war was about and is about. no it isn't and no it wasn't ever. even the bush administration was forced to concede reluctantly that there were not weapons of mass destruction where upon the president decided to make it into a joke. >> no weapons over there. maybe under here. >> that was just as hilarious at the time as it still is today, with more than 4,400 american lives to bolster the belly laughs. ultimately, none of the things our government, at the time, told us were the reasons we had to start a war in iraq were true. opponents of the war said
's out there as well. rob marciano here with us in atlanta in the extreme weather center. it's just a messy one. >> it is, welcome, john. not only do we have all of that happening but right now two tornado warnings out for parts of virginia and north carolina. let's go to the magic wall. kyra tuck county, northeastern parts of north carolina, and matthews county, the pink polygons that you see here these are tornadoes. and both of these cells are moving north at 40 miles an hour. so moving very, very quickly. this saul within a tornado watch that empasses a big swath of real estate across the mid-atlantic until 1:00 this afternoon. so this is -- you know, we have remnants of a tropical system which was only around for a little bit. and we got a tremendous amount of rain. flooding a huge issue. boy, i'll tell you some of the areas that we've already seen flooding in, like wilmington, 7 inches of rainfall. that's just in 24 hours. and that doesn't include, john, the 10 inches that they had two days earlier. they could very well end up with 20 inches of rainfall without a hurricane the
that every election is a choice. if you have to run against the ideal, if it's a referendum, every one of us will get beats. we'd have nobody in office because there's no such thing as the perfect public servant. the choices you make in politics are like the choices you make in life. you make the best available choice. >> that's an interesting insight into the obama's strategy. he talked about how what obama is doing is to try to draw mitch mcconnell and john boehner on to television where they aren't so good and expose them as part of the no team. part of a long interview we did today. part of an upcoming documentary. by the way, that was taped today at the clinton institute on american politics, university college dublin. one of the many institutes being set up by the former president. >>> james clyburn said if republicans win the house, they'll use subpoena power to try to delegitimize president obama. darrell issa said he was being paranoid and goofy. up next, we'll ask iss what what republicans are planning to do with the power that he will have in his hand. you're watching "hardball" f
. this is governor sarah palin. vote for christine o'donnell for u.s. senate this tuesday. >> reporter: o'donnell is up against one of delaware's most popular political figures, congressman mike castle. republican leaders think he is their only chance of winning joe biden's old senate seat. >> if she were, by some miracle to be our nominee, we would lose this seat and lose it by unprecedented numbers. >> reporter: castle has won 11 strait-wide elections in heavily-democratic delaware. in part because he is a proportion rights, pro-gun control moderate, who works with democrats. that's exactly why tea party activists don't like him. >> the republican party has lost its way. they get behind candidates like my opponent, who don't even support the republican platform. who continue to support the democrats' agenda, lock, step and barrel. >> high-stakes. we're here at the smart screen to look at the state of the overall race. let's begin with the senate right now. the magic number for republicans in the senate. they now hold 41 senate seats. they need ten to take control. this is the universe o
with a built in expiration date at the end of this year. he demanded the democrats vote on taxes without using the suspension procedure. suspension would require a 2/3 vote. more on that in a moment. the senate's fail youure to vote, dick durbin on what he sees as simple math. >> i can count and i know you can too. we have 59 democrats and not a single democrat supports our position that we need to do something responsible, but to help middle income families bring us out of the recession. >> 'is that different after the election? >> well, i hope it will be different. occasionally one republican will respect us. what it gets down to is we can count. we don't have 60 votes for the tax position. we want to say after the election, when we still face a deadline by the end of the year, we will take up the tax issues. >> however immediately after the election, the terms of three a pointed senators expyre from west virginia, illinois and delaware. if they are seated immediately as expected, the republican filibuster would be harder to over item. another issue with which democrats may want to come to g
of the region's quickly rising waters. firefighters had to use ladders to reach some folks stranded on top of their homes. at least two people are reported dead in all of this. this storm also created a series of tornadoes in the dallas-fort worth area, reports of eight tornadoes swirling, some right through central dallas, moving over buildings, one tornado hit a shopping center, scattering debris all over the place. jenna: imagine seeing this giant dark cloud coming towards you, a helicopter tv crew caught this on camera. watch for the flashes of light by that tower on your screen there. that's the funnel cloud that is slamming into power lines. just imagine that. there were power outages, no reports of any serious injuries. that's a good thing, but quite a scary situation. >>> also check this out, also in dallas, several funnel clouds forming after the heavy rains moved out. you can see the tornadoes moving across the sky there as the sun is trying to break out through some of those dark clouds. >>> well, where are folks feeling the rest of this storm now? meteorologist janice dean is w
. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "countdown" with keith olbermann starts right now. >>> which of these stories will you be talking about tomorrow? general david petraeus urges a florida church to reconsider. let's burn some korans on 9/11 to show them how much better we are than they are. >> we have firmly made up our mind but at the same time we are definitely praying about it. >> even the rumor that it might take place, petraeus writes, has sparked demonstrations such as the one that took place in kabul yesterday. the general on the ground in afghanistan speaks. why aren't the right wing politicians listening to him and echoing his concern? the silence of the republicans. silver lining among registered voters, the generic house seat. republicans 47, democrats 45. the task for the dems how to inspire registered voters to become likely voters. amid reports of a rahm emanuel run for mayor of chicago, and a new chief of staff in the white house, the president steps it up. >> if i said the sky was blue, they'd say no. if i said, fish live in the sea, they'd say no. the
